Tulkinghorn is wondering whether it is just pure coincidence or if Hammonds has taken a new strategic direction. A few weeks ago Tulkinghorn sought free marketing advice on behalf of Hammonds, looking for ways to promote its latest client win of a leading condom manufacturer. Well, it seems the firm is at it again - this time it's picked up work on the acquisition of some lingerie (okay, it was actually advising a client on the acquisition of the lingerie division of Charnos). This time, though, it needed no help with its marketing campaign, as you can see with the publicity photo received by Tulkinghorn last week. Gratuitous it may be, but has Hammonds discovered a niche market? Could it become the first leading exponent of saucy law? Well, it would certainly be a change of direction.
